    Homemade Belt Sander

    Hello my name is Vernon I built a Homemade Belt Sander. I have about 500 hours in it and $1,200.00 in materials. I didn't build the sander to save money but more to see if I could. Please ask question or leave comments.

    Nice

    Not the first homemade belt sander I've seen, but it certainly looks like the most professional!

    We'll get this indexed and added to the encyclopedia on Monday. Thanks for posting it.

    Hello Vernon. That's a neat sander. What motor did you use?

    1 hp motor. You could use a bigger motor but if you do I would use 220 volts instead of 110 volts to cut down on the Amps.
